Merry Christmas to one and all! Personally, my holidays kinda ended a few weeks ago when I didn’t need to light anymore candles for Hanukkah, so I got to sit back and just enjoy the fever pitch that Xmas puts a lot of my friends into.
Now, I know that for many of you, it’s a family tradition to watch certain films at this time of the year. For some of you, it might be A Christmas Story. For others, it might be Gremlins. Hell, for all I know, some of you might have a tradition of doing a Nightmare On Elm St. marathon (kudos to you and your family for being awesome).
For me, I watch whatever I want because it’s simply just another day of the year for me. So, today I watched Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

So, was this trip worth the price of admission or did I end up wanting a refund? Find out below. READ MORE
One of the most recognizable composers in Hollywood, Danny Elfman has been a part of some of the biggest movies over the past 25 years. And in celebration of that, Warner Bros. is releasing the Danny Elfman/Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box this December. Pre-orders are open now HERE, but be warned that it’s a bit pricey. I’ll say this however, that for everything you get, it’s worth every penny and more.
